Granada is known for its medieval architecture dating to the Moorish occupation from the Alhambra times.
Today Granada is famous for its prestigious university and famous testimony of the Islamic cultural legacy.
The city is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada range in the Cordillera Penibetica. The highest mountain “Mulhacen” in Spain, standing proud and tall at 11411 feet high.
You can have the best of both worlds here in Granada, ski the slopes of these beautiful mountains in winter and swim the Mediterranean sea in Summer
The best way to really enjoy Granada is to close your mind and open your heart. The town has suffered highs and lows with the economy. Even though this is an amazing place to visit at the moment Tourism is not big here.
You can enjoy a nice relaxing walk in the city, shopping the traditional old style shops to new labels.
You can get the local bus number C1 from the city center to the Hilltop – Alhambra, enjoy the views of the city from the top
You can visit the Monumental complex of the Alhambra and Generalife – 1100’s summer palace with serene patios and elaborate gardens with reflecting pools and fountains – you can easily spend the whole day here. Take your time to really appreciate the art, culture and the history of this
The locals say the best time to visit Granada is Spring or Autumn. I am here today, nice Autumn day bit overcast and chilly. But very pleased to get out and enjoy this beautiful town, indulge in its food and Culture. Granada is must visit.
